Make it Modern Events presents its inaugural modern quilting retreat in Reno, Nevada, June 9-12, 2016.

We have two fabulous modern quilters who will guide you through two days of classes, be available for additional help, discussions, and fun each evening at the sewing salon, and present a trunk show on Sunday morning.

So who are our two great instructors, you ask? Christina Cameli and Libs Elliott! If you were unable to get into their respective classes at QuiltCon West, this will be your next and best chance to learn from the experts!

TICKET PRICE: Early-Bird pricing for Make It Modern - Reno is $425.00 per person, or $400 per person for groups of 5 or more. Early-Bird pricing ends April 20, 2016 at which point the ticket price will increase to $450.00. Cost may be split into two payments with a $25.00 handling fee.
